Part 1 of 2

Mark Tooley, President of the Institute on Religion and Democracy, discusses Reverend Edward Welles’ sermon from New Year’s Day, 1942. The sermon, “Pardon, Power, and Peace”, urged repentance for America’s longtime pre-Pearl Harbor isolationism.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

The Reverend Edward Welles once spoke this phrase: “By far our greatest sin is the sin of international irresponsibility.” Were these words indirectly targeted toward Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt?

Did the Reverend Welles equate American isolationists to the Priest and Levite of the Good Samaritan story who shunned the assaulted traveler?

After his sermon on New Year’s Day, 1942, why did the church sing: “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”? Was this against tradition for a Southern congregation to sing a Northern song?

In his sermon, the Reverend Welles chastised a sinful America for neglecting global duties inherent to a powerful nation. Can power and prestige be sustained without accepting “international responsibility that those privileges impose”?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do most Christian pastors only preach isolationism today?

Did Jesus exemplify power in a godly way?

Someday, all will bow before Him, whether they want to or not. Is this the ultimate display of power?

Are there many prominent Christians today who are willingly speak so boldly of God’s justice and mercy operating among nations?

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries  is entitled: “How to Defeat Discouragement” and is taken from Romans 8:37 “But it all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

You have to keep on keeping on.

How do you respond to tough situations? Do you keep on trucking on your own? Or, do you allow God to guide your way?

Further Scripture reading: Numbers 25-26

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How do you pray? How did Paul pray?

Mark points out some odd phrases that Paul used in Colossians 4:2-4, comparing Greek vocabulary to the English translation…

Why do Greek words have so many different meanings?

Why should we pray more often than just before a meal? Mark will continue with this tomorrow…

Day 1

This week, we conclude the MULTIPLY sermon series from Champion Forest Baptist Church. The focused verse for MULTIPLY comes from 2 Corinthians 9:10 “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.”

Scriptures for this week: Hebrews 11

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is it hard for you to follow God’s plan in blind faith?

Hebrews 11 offers a summary of the high and low points of Abraham’s life. When God tested Abraham and Sarah, they kept believing in His promises.

Why did Abraham obey so faithfully?

Did Sarah have as much faith as Abraham?

Why should our first response to God’s call be faith? Why should our second response be obedience?

Is faith risky? Pastor Fleming responds: “God has more for us than He would ever ask from us. If God is asking for something great from us, it is only because He has something greater for us.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
